Nottingham Station – Hub Interchange

The principal aim of the project was to regenerate Nottingham Station into a multi-modal transport interchange ‘Hub’. It is an integral part of a wider regional transportation development fo the city.

The Hub supports NCC’s aspiration to create a transport facility that meets the needs of both passengers and operators. It aims to support Nottingham’s physical transformation and economic growth, contributing to its economic competitiveness, attractiveness and sustainability.

Nottingham Hub provides the ability for passengers to switch between train, tram, bus, taxi, and car, all within the immediate vicinity of the station.

The works comprised:

  • construction of a new 950 space multi-storey car park, replacing the previous 600 space ground level facility
  • refurbishment of the main Grade 2 listed concourse, including the main booking hall, porte-cochere and dispersal bridge
  • construction of a new south concourse building, including lifts and escalators, to form an intermodal transport link with the Nottingham Express Transit System
  • construction of a new, additional platform
  • construction of new canopies to platform 6
  • refurbishment of platform canopies and surfaces.

Nottingham Station – Hub Interchange

The Hub Project transformed the station into a bright, modern, 21st century focal point for Nottingham.

It will increase capacity and deliver:

  • a multi-storey car park that replaces the existing facility and raises capacity by 350 spaces
  • regeneration of the Grade 2 listed structures on the north and south concourses
  • enhanced commercial opportunities for commerce in the ground floor of the multi-storey car park
  • an increase in the potential station retail revenue
  • potentially, a significant increase in the absolute volume of passengers and rail market share
  • improved user-friendliness and ease of movement for passengers within the station
  • improved quality and efficiency of transport interchange.
